The D-Link DGS-1210-10P Smart Managed Switches are the latest generation of switches to provide increased Power over Ethernet (PoE) output, a range of physical interface types, multiple management interfaces, and advanced Layer 2 features. With all of these features combined, the DGS-1210 Series provides a cost-efficient and flexible solution for expanding any business network.
Additionally, the DGS-1210-10P’s 10/100/1000 Mbps ports are PoE-enabled, offering ease-of-use and green features like time based PoE, which allows for the power to be shut off at a predetermined time. Compliant with 802.3af and 802.3at Pre-Standard, this switch is capable of feeding power to devices up to 30 Watts. management options for the switches include SNMP, Web management,D-Link Network Assistant Utility, and Compact Command Lines.The series also supports ACL filtering and D-Link’s Safeguard Engine. The DGS-1210 Series uses Auto Voice VLAN, ensuring higher priority for voice traffic.The DGS-1210-10P comes with a fanless design in a compact 13” desktop enclosure. A fanless design allows for quieter operation and guarantees an extended lifetime, while smart fans help to save power.
D-Link is constantly striving to take the lead in developing innovative technology that allows for power-saving without sacrificing operational performance or functionality. The DGS-1210 Series automatically detects the length of connected cables and can adjust power usage by saving energy on shorter cable connections. Link status drastically reduces power consumption by automatically toggling ports without a link to sleep mode. The DGS-1210 Series takes the approach to green IT one step further by incorporating a special chipset with advanced silicon technology.
The DGS-1210 Series includes a wide range of port and media types, including 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports, 100/1000 Mbps combo ports, and 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports. The DGS-1210-10, DGS-1210-26, DGS-1210-10P, and DGS-1210-10MP models feature 2 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports, while all other DGS-1210 Series models feature 4 100/1000 Mbps combo ports, allowing you to choose the most suitable media type for your requirements. All DGS-1210 Series PoE switches include support for IEEE 802.3af/at and higher power budgets, allowing more PoE devices to be powered by the switch and for devices to be installed in remote locations without immediate access to power outlets.
Extensive Layer 2 Features
Equipped with a complete lineup of L2 features, these switches include IGMP Snooping, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). The IEEE 802.3x Flow Control function allows servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. At 2000 Mbps Full Duplex, the Gigabit ports provide high-speed data pipes to servers with minimum data transfer loss. Network maintenance features include Loopback Detection and Cable Diagnostics. Loopback Detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shut down the affected port. The Cable Diagnostic feature, designed primarily for administrators and customer service representatives, can rapidly discover the type of error and determine the cable quality.
QoS, Bandwidth Control
The switches are perfect for deployment in a VoIP environment, as they support Auto Voice VLAN and Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) QoS for VoIP. Auto Voice VLAN will automatically place voice traffic from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN and by doing so enhance the VoIP service. With a higher priority and individual VLAN, this feature guarantees the quality and security of VoIP traffic. DSCP marks parts of an IP packet, enabling different levels of service to be assigned for network traffic. With Bandwidth Control, network administrators can reserve bandwidth for important functions that require a larger bandwidth or might have high priority.
Secure your Network
D-Link’s innovative Safeguard Engine protects the switches against traffic flooding caused by virus attacks. The switches also support 802.1X port based authentication, allowing the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers. In addition, the Access Control List (ACL) feature enhances network security and helps to protect the internal IT network. The DGS-1210 Series includes ARP Spoofing Prevention, which protects from attacks on the Ethernet network that may allow an intruder to sniff data frames, modify traffic, or bring traffic to a halt altogether by sending fake ARP messages to the network. To prevent ARP Spoofing attacks, the switch uses Packet Control ACLs to block invalid packets that contain fake ARP messages. For added security, the DHCP Server Screening feature screens rogue DHCP server packets from user ports to prevent unauthorized IP assignment.
The DGS-1210 series provides web-based management interface and D-Link Network Assistant Utility that enables administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level. The Network Assistant easily allows customers to discover multiple D-Link Smart Switches within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC. It also simplifies the initial setup of the Smart Switches. Switches within the same L2 network segment that are connected to the user’s PC are displayed on screen for instant access. This allows extensive switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices including password changes and firmware upgrades. The DGS-1210 Series also supports D-View 7 and Compact Command Line Interface (CLI) through Telnet. D-View 7 is a Network Management System that allows for the central management of critical network characteristics such as availability, reliability, resilience, and security. CLI management of the switches is possible via Telnet. This makes it possible to adjust basic settings, passwords, configuration files, and firmware with ease.
